OBJECTIVES This study was designed to review outcomes in relation to antithrombotic therapy management strategies for patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) who undergo percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) with stenting. BACKGROUND There is limited evidence on the optimal antithrombotic therapy management strategies for patients with AF who undergo PCI with stenting. METHODS We reviewed 426 patients (70.9% men, mean age 71.5 +/- 8.5 years) with AF undergoing PCI with stenting between… CONTINUE READING
